Government plans to collect data on all travellers coming to the UK could be illegal under EU law, according to a parliamentary committee.

In a report, the Commons Home Affairs Committee said compulsory gathering of data under the £1.2bn e-Borders scheme could be illegal under the terms of the EU treaty.

Under the e-Borders scheme, the details of every passenger entering or leaving the UK will be logged in a database run by the UK Border Agency (UKBA).
